Full Dentures

Dentures are acrylic resin replacement for natural teeth. By choosing custom-fitted dentures, you can improve chewing and speaking while also improving your appearance.

The two types of dentures are complete and partial. Complete dentures are used when the client has lost the majority of their teeth on the top or the bottom. Partial dentures are recommended if you still have some teeth remaining but wish to maintain the stability of your alignment.

Getting Accustomed to Your Dentures

It is normal to feel awkward when you’re getting used to your dentures. Your mouth should eventually get accustomed to them, although you will probably need practice taking the dentures in and out. Your dentures are supposed to go into place easily, so do not force your partial dentures into place or you could damage them. To keep even pressure, practice chewing food on both sides and avoid hard or sticky food.

Caring for Your Dentures

To clean your dentures, brush them daily to avoid staining and remove any food or plaque. Invest in a special denture brush and avoid hard bristle brushes. It’s also important to keep brushing any natural teeth you have, especially those under the metal clasps. If you have complete dentures, you should still brush your palate, gums and tongue.


Necessary adjustments to dentures are normal because your mouth naturally changes as time passes. Improperly fitting dentures can cause many health problems including infections, so it’s important to have them professionally adjusted to ensure their stability. If you have any questions about adhesives or the denture fitting process, please let us know.
